Dog Who Was Found With His Mouth Taped Shut Just Found The Perfect Owner To Keep Him Safe

A dog was found wandering around Lehigh Acres in Florida last week with its snout taped shut with red electrical tape.

Chance, the Cur, was malnourished, dehydrated and suffocating as a result of one of the most heinous examples of animal cruelty.


Fortunately, as his name implies, Chance was given a new lease on life after being found by Sheriff Carmine Marceno and adopted by the Florida Sheriff's office.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office posted an encouraging update to all who were concerned about the poor animal's condition, who also sustained wounds to his leg and chest.



He is recovering nicely and the positive update read, in part:

"Chance is progressing wonderfully! He has gained weight, his wounds are healing nicely and he is beginning to trust select people."
"Heartfelt thanks to the remarkable staff at LCDAS for the love and care that they are giving to Chance!"

The new addition to the staff at the Sheriff's Office is Deputy Chance.

He is being assigned to the Community Relations Bureau as the "Spokes-Dog" for the department's Pets on Patrol program and even has his own office and email account: eputychance@sheriffleefl.org, according to Cox Media Group National Content Desk.

The original owner of the dog has not been found and the Sheriff's Office is offering a Crime Stoppers reward of up to $3,000.

Additionally, another group announced a $5,000 reward for anyone offering information on the abusive owner, bringing the reward amount to $8,000.



A statement describing Chance's distressed state upon being discovered on February 26 said:

"This dog was on the brink of a terrifying, lonely death."

Although Deputy Chance is in a new home, animal lovers were infuriated over his previous abuse.







The Sheriff's Office Facebook post was flooded with compliments for rescuing Chance.

I agree with Chris Pratt.


May the new member of the paw patrol understand that most humans are capable of showing all the love and affection he deserves and may he continue to experience nothing but endless adoration.

We love you, Chance!

People Who've Survived Being Shot Explain What It Really Feels Like

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?

***CAUTION - SENSITIVE MATERIAL AHEAD - TRIGGER WARNING***

Redditor notaninterestingacc wanted to hear from the people who have lived the nightmare. They asked:

"Gunshot survivors of Reddit - What does it feel like to get shot?"

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

People shared their best stories with us after Redditor shantics asked the online community,

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
